I am intending on authoring a role playing game (RPG) and was wondering which LaTeX packages I should use. I have most of the useful PDF packages installed:
Pen and paper role playing games have a wide range for formatting mostly adding tables, graphics (images, maps, etc...), and text. The latter can be in-character fiction, generic descriptions, and game rules. Some have layouts that are genra specific (for example, science fiction will have a printed circuit board border between two columns). A good example of layout would be Eclipse Phase which you can get here -- creative commons.
The main book layout seems to do most of what I need it to. However, I have seen the
memoir class that seems to more more suitable but I have had no experience in using it. Does anyone?
For indexes, I use the
makeidx package, is there anything better?
Any other suggestions of packages that would be helpful for authoring RPGs?
Nothing is wrong with what I am currently using, I am just looking for people who have done the same kind of things for something "better" than the default.
